      pin problem

      Hi everyone. Just got an old thomson sky box from ebay today and all of the channels have a pin lock. I can't get a hold of the seller and there was no info of a pin with the box. Was wondering if there was anyway to reset the box to get rid of the pin? Much thanks for any help

      Did it come with a viewing card or are you using your own?

      Re: pin problem

      You can reset your PIN online, try here - https://myaccount.sky.com/tv/pin

      Alternately you can do it through the Interactive Services button, Option 3 then scroll down to Change Pin.
